Morning lovely Crafters and dear WOYWW friends.
Another week has flown by and it's been a week of big, big changes in The Craft Garden. Facing redundancy from the job he has been in for nearly 30 years my DH started up on his own on Monday. An exciting thing to do but also very scary. Thankfully, he has the backing of an established company but they are based in Chesterfield which is a 90 minute commute from here. I think that has been the biggest challenge so far and it means a very early start. I'm now getting an extra 3 hours crafting every day!!!!!!
So what is on my desk this early in the morning.
Lots of distress inks. I was inspired by a desk last week, sorry I can't remember whose, but a lot of blue and brown inks were being used and so I decided to have a play with that combination and I love it. This is my second sheet. The first one has already been used up but I can't share that with you just yet. I love the fact that you can just splodge the inks onto card and they turn into something really beautiful after being sprayed with either water or a mica spray.
Yesterday, the sun was shining so I played at my Greenhouse desk. Do you remember those Lantana plants I was nurturing in my Craft Room last Winter? Those of you who live in Australia will just have to shut your eyes, but look at them now.
Two survived and they are really beautiful. It's taken all Summer for them to get going but they have rewarded me well.
I'm now nurturing my last remaining Dahlia that didn't end up as the monster slugs dinner. Isn't it a lovely colour?
So that's my desks this week. If you want to share yours then pop over to see our lovely Desk Headmistress, Julia, HERE.
Lots of you commented on my H20's last week and many said you had them lurking in a drawer from years ago. I've recently rediscovered mine and there is so much that you can do with them apart from just painting. If anyone is interested I'll do another post on how to make backgrounds with them.
Thanks for stopping by. It's our 14th Wedding Anniversary today so I'm celebrating with a cuppa in bed even though it's 6.20am in the morning. Hopefully, I'll see you at a desk near you later on in the day.
Have a Crafty Wednesday.
